My work on the Roadtrip Nation Web site primarily involved developing Student Community pages, such as directly accessible through links on the home page. This entailed both front-end and back-end coding, as well as creating and modifying database tables and stored procedures to drive the pages. My responsibilities did not include graphic design.
To the left is one of the pages I worked on.
This site is designed to promote the beverage XanGo and to inform prospects of the associated business opportunity. As a tool to aid in building the business, each member receives a customizable Web site that is a subdomain of gomangosteen.com.
The gomangosteen.com domain uses a DNS wildcard to allow subdomains based on site names found in the GoMangosteen member table. It has a Member's Area and also an Administration Area, which are used for various aspects of site maintenance, including member management, site page management,| and billing.
I coded this using PHP and MySQL.
My solution was to provide her with a password-protected tool that would allow her to add categories and subcategories for her fine art and mural paintings and to upload images into them for display.
Here is a site I mainly did "just for fun." Although a member of the Channel Islands Mensa group at the time, I had no responsibility for the group's Web presence: I simply thought theirs appeared to be suffering from neglect and that I could provide better. Unfortunately, I never succeeded in connecting with the gentleman who was responsible, so this site never saw the light of day.
Like many of the sites I worked on, this was designed with a content management system I had built (PHP, MySQL) back before I was aware that the wheel had already been invented.
This is the design and semi-functional model of the Web site I developed for the San Luis Obispo Seventh-day Adventist Church sometime around 2005 or 2006. The client had emailed me because he was favorably impressed by another site I had done. His request was for a design that was "a little edgy, clean, and useful." This is what I delivered.
I designed this Web site to allow the client to manage the content, and I used a management system I had previously programmed. (Yes, better CMSs were probably available. I did not know this at the time.) Thus, the data on this site is modifiable through an administrative interface to which the client had access.
Note that, although I am a developer primarily, I did the graphic design, the database design, and the PHP programming for this site.
This site uses password-protected Administration and Member's Areas, which provide content management, member management, and billing capabilities.
I implemented the functionality of this site using PHP and MySQL.
